Pirelli confirms compounds for Formula 1 in Azerbaijan
Baku, Azerbaijan March 4
By Maksim Tsurkov - Trend:
Formula 1's sole tyre supplier Pirelli has confirmed that the Super Soft, Soft and Medium tyres will be available to drivers when the sport visits Azerbaijan for the first time in June, gpupdate.net said.
The 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe will be held on June 17-19 in Baku.
The selection is identical to the trio of compounds which will be taken to the opening four Grands Prix in Australia, Bahrain, China and Russia.
For 2016, each driver will receive 13 dry-weather sets per Grand Prix, with Pirelli choosing two sets for the race (only one of which must be used), and a set of the softest compound, only for use in Q3.
Drivers are free to select any combination of the chosen compounds for the other 10 sets.
